US Marine Rescues American Flag On 4th of July (Video)

A U.S. Marine Corps veteran rescued an American flag from a highway near Spokane, Washington, this 4th of July. The flag had detached from the vehicle of its owner, a young man named Dallas Pierce, who lost it returning from a trip to a swimming hole, and who doubled back ten miles to find the flag, but to no avail. When the veteran, Nathan Sheets, returned the flag to Pierce, the young man was overwhelmed. “People die, not necessarily for the flag but they die for their brothers, for their families, and they go fight for it, but the flag symbolizes that,” Pierce said.
